Monday, April 3rd - 7pm - 8pm | Parent Meeting at Baysox Stadium
Intramural coaches bring your kids out and the travel baseball coaches will give you drills and pointers to use for your team's practice sessions. Points of emphasis will include batting stance/swing mechanics, ground ball approach, fly ball approach, glove-side relay, and (for minor and major) pitching mechanics. [Rain date Sunday April 9th 9am - 11am]
Saturday, April 15th 6pm - 8pm | Player evaluation day (No evaluations for T-Ball)
Bowie Bulldogs Baseball conducts player evaluations so that we can create equally competitive rosters. Then coaches will be able to transfer equally rated players based on parent coach requests. If you do not participate in the evaluation day, your coach request will not be honored. If you do not participate in the evaluation day, your player will receive a 2-star (our of 4) rating. We will conduct evaluations on Saturday unless the fields are closed due to weather, in which case we will have evaluations the following day.
April 17th - 21st | Player draft and roster notification
Age group directors will fill teams based on player evaluations so that teams are balanced. A parent's coach requests will be honored as long as the roster remains balanced. As noted above, if you do not participate in evaluation day, your coach request will not be honored. Roster notifications will be sent from BBGC via email to all parents no later than Friday night (April 21st).
April 22nd 6pm - 8pm | Equipment Pickup for Coaches (at the baseball shed)
Coaches come to the baseball shed to pickup equipment, balls, and baseball shirts for your team. The baseball shed is located on Public Works Road [Off of Route 450 past Sacred Heart Church. Public Works Road is on the left before you reach Route 3. Equipment shed is located at the end of this road.]
April 24th | Practice begins for all age groups
Intramural coaches will set the schedule for when they practice but typically practices are held twice a week. Older children may play two games per week (1 weekday, 1 weekend). Children participating in the intramural league will practice and play at area parks and schools located in Bowie. The t-ball age group will have the same type of schedule as the older kids but games will be held only on weekends (makeup games due to weather not withstanding). Intramural baseball will end the third week of June.
April 29th | Play Ball!
Games begin this weekend.
June 2nd | League Night at The Baysox
Our Bulldogs head over to PG Stadium to see our Bowie Baysox in action against the Altoona Curve. Players and head coaches will receive free tickets. Coaches will collect money for player parents and siblings. Tickets will be distributed to coaches the week before the game. We will also have a booth outside the stadium before the game.
June 10th-11th | End of season tournament (except T-Ball, which plays their final game)
Single elimination tournament format for the Coach Pitch, Minor, and Major divisions. Every team makes it in, but which team will win the city championship?
June 19th 7pm - 8pm | Equipment Return for Coaches (at the Baseball Shed)
Coaches come to the baseball shed to return equipment. The baseball shed is located on Public Works Road [Off of Route 450 past Sacred Heart Church. Public Works Road is on the left before you reach Route 3. Equipment shed is located at the end of this road.]
Don't forget to throw the ball around during the summer. Maybe even head over to Jericho or Foxhill and spend some time hitting balls in the cage that was built courtesy of BBGC! Fall travel baseball tryouts will be here before you know it, and you should consider trying out for travel baseball.
The cost for intramural baseball is $60 (unless you are late registering in which case its $75).
The age chart is listed below. If you have problems with the chart please send me an email to email@example.com.
Thanks - Bowie Bulldogs Baseball
Parents & Guardians will have their refund requests (minus the $30 administrative fee) honored if that request is made before the first game of the season. Whether your player participates in the game or not, you need to make the refund request BEFORE April 29th.
